« FRIGHTFUL COLLIERY EXPLOSION. -FouR. TEEN LIVES LOST.—A terrible colliery explosion occurred on Tuesday evening at the Little Delf Mine, Ashton, belonging to Moses Bromilow and Co., by which 14 lives were lost. The pit is that in which occurred a similar fatality in May, 1866. The pit is 460 yards deep, and the workings are upwards of 1,000 yards in extent. The accident is said to have been brought about by firing a shot. The shot was fired by a pitman named Topping. SUDDEN DEATH OF A CLERGYMAN. We have to record the sudden demise of the Rev. Wm. Robt. Browell, M.A., rector of Beaumont-cum-Moze, in the archdeaconry of Colchester. The rev. gentleman had been to Tendring on the morning of his death, and on his return home he complained of a pain in his head, fell backwards, and almost immediately expired. The deceased clergyman was well known throughout Essex as officially connected with many of the institutions (chiefly missionary) of the Established Church. He had just effected the restoration of his own parish church. YELLOW FEVER AT JAMAICA.—Yellow fever still unfortunately exists in Jamaica, though not to such an extent as a few months ago. It has disappeared from Port Royal and Up-park Camp and but few cases have been sent to the Kingston Public Hospital from the shipping in the harbour. A few cases have occurred at the outports of the island in ships which have recently been in Kingston harbour. But, unfortunately, the dis- ease has made its appearance at Newcastle Barracks, a military station for the white troops in the mountains, at an elevation of from 8,500 to 4,120 feet above the level of the sea. Several cases have proved fatal In this epidemic several fatal cases have occurred among those who are natives, and have never left the island. Some of them were coloured persons. Since the com- mencement of the epidemic four medical men belonging to the services have fallen victims—Dr. D'Arcy, Dr. Richardson, Dr. Forbes, and Dr. Duirs, the deputy inspector of the Naval Hospital at Port RoyaL
